Shelter dog greets new family and immediately hugs him

Maggie’s life has been filled with heartbreak until she meets her forever family.

She can’t stop hugging them now.

The dog is pictured with her new family.

Mary McGraw and her husband Mark had recently lost their rescue dog, Mischka, to cancer.
They were unsure whether they wanted to fill the void until they met Maggie.

McGraw told Dodo, “She melted my heart.”
“A few months before meeting Maggie, we lost another dog, and it was just a meet and greet in my heart.”
I didn’t think I was ready for a new dog at the time.”
For decades, Guy and wild sharks have been best friends.

Maggie’s charm makes the McGraw family irresistible, and Rescue arranges a meet-and-greet.

“I bent down so she wouldn’t be scared, and within seconds, she was in my lap for the rest of my life,” McGraw explained.
“Her story tore us apart.
Meeting her was like falling in love at first sight.
We had a feeling she was meant to be with us.”

Maggie’s former owner neglected her and used her for breeding prior to this happy ending.
Maggie is placed with a caring foster family where she can regain her strength.
She was finally ready for adoption after months of recovery.

Andra Mack told Dodo, “She became one of the cutest dogs we’ve ever had.”
“When Maggie met her new father, my husband and I just stared at each other—because we knew.”
It was like something out of a movie.”

Mack knew she’d found the right match the moment Maggie met McCraws.
Maggie continued to hug them as if to say, “Thank you.”

“They were destined to be together,” Mack explained.
“The clear sunlight in the video led me to believe that their former dog, Mischka, was looking down and smiling at that meeting.”
